- Cricket live news revealed New Zealand’s cricketing tour for the 2018-19 cricket season which involves tours by India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
- The development which particularly made waves in live cricket news was the refusal on the part of Bangladesh to not play the day night Test match against the Black Caps
While New Zealand were making waves in live cricket news after having released their cricket schedule for the 2018-19 season. However, the Black Caps faced a snag when Bangladesh refused to play the pink ball, day night Test match, something which is bound to make waves in cricket live news.
New Zealand cricket live news released their home schedule for the upcoming cricketing season on Tuesday (July 31) which was heavy on one-day internationals (ODIs). And while the schedule confirmed tours by Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh, it couldn’t see a complete consensus on the part of Bangladesh, who do not seem to be ready to play the day night Test against the Black Caps.
New Zealand to respect Bangladesh’s decision to not play the day night Test
As reported by SBS news in cricket live news, New Zealand Cricket chief operating officer Anthony Crummy informed that the three-match Test series against the Bangladesh national cricket team was to be wrapped up with a pink ball, day night Test match, which the visitors aren’t feeling completely prepared for. Explaining the rationale on the part of the Bangladesh national cricket team, Anthony Crummy made a statement in live cricket news and said,
“They haven’t played a day-night test, nor have they had a lot of preparation in their own first-class cricket. We respect that decision and I’m sure day-night cricket will continue.”
The cricket teams who will be taking the trip to New Zealand include Sri Lanka and India as well. While Sri Lanka are set to play a two-match Test series, three-match ODI series and a single T20 international match, India’s visit will be comprising of a five-match ODI series and a three-match T20I series.
Latest cricket news also revealed that only two T20I clashes will be hosted at New Zealand’s biggest ground, i.e. the Eden Park, across the summer. The cause for this that while the stadium faces resource consent restrictions, it would mean that Eden Park will not be able to accommodate to the late starts which are suggested by the Indian broadcasting giant, Star Sports.
The tour by the Indian team will be closely followed by the Indian women’s team’s trip to New Zealand, which is set to have three double-header T20 internationals in Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton in early February of 2019. As reported in cricket live news, the Indian women’s fixtures will finish an hour before the clashes of the Men in Blue kickoff.
